Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be kept in an airtight, vaccuum-sealed room 3 meters x 3.5 meters x 4 meters in dimension. Red light strips should line the edges of the ceiling.1 A set of airlock doors should be installed to prepare any ingoing or outgoing personnel for pressurization. Meals and mineral water are to be provided daily. No personnel are to engage in conversation with SCP-XXXX, unless given expressed permission to hold and record an interview with SCP-XXXX, or otherwise instructed to do so. Any personnel entering are required to wear full body pressurized suits with individual oxygen supplies, and helmets equipped with electronicly automated UV shielded visors with a shield rating of 10.2 Any observers expecting to be in SCP-XXXX's presence for any longer than 14 minutes are to be supervised/accompanied by an individual with no emotional ties to either reptiles or pets of any sort. All persons who enter SCP-XXXX's cell must undergo a psychiatric and psychological examination before entering and after exiting the cell despite the individual's initial condition. Airlock doors are to be checked daily, and vaccuum pump seals are to be inspected twice a day for any leaks or damages.Vaccum pump filters are to be cleaned weekly and replaced bi-monthly. Two level-3 security officers are to be positioned just outside the containment room. Security officers are to be rotaed every three hours and are to be given a psychological evaluation before rotating on and after rotating off. In the event that SCP-XXXX manages to escape3 Level-4 personnel are to dispatched to recontain SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX is to be cornered slowly and asked to come back to its cell. If it refuses, only cryogenic rounds are to be used for the sole purpose of stunning SCP-XXXX long enough to return it to its cell. If SCP-XXXX is discovered with extra rations of food they are not to be confiscated, however in the event that SCP-XXXX is caught receiving surplus rations of food from maintenence workers, food in question is to be removed and the worker(s) is/are to be detained and quarantined for 1 week before being reassigned. Maintainence workers are to avoid eye contact with SCP-XXXX. SCP-XXXX may speak to and have full conversations with doctors and reseachers only. All conversations must be documented. SCP-XXXX may also ask questions and make requests to guards. Guards are not to respond verbally to SCP-XXXX unless supervised by a doctor or by another individual capable of restraining the said guard.
Description: SCP-XXXX is an anthropomorphic reptilian being resembling a dragon of some kind, and is capable of speech, and stands 2.5 meters in height. It wears a wrap around its mouth which it repeatedly refuses to remove, claiming that that action is 'obscene and unacceptable for his kind', indicating that there are others like him it. It has attempted to initiate converation with every personnel member to enter its containment room with the exception of a handful of researchers and doctors which he it consistantly refuses to acknowledge the existance of. The reasoning behind this behaviour is currently unknown. SCP-XXXX comments frequently about how incredible 'This establishment' is, and how 'there's such a vast amount of knowledge' contained here. SCP-XXXX was found in a cave near a crater after a family reported having seen a large, glowing, violet and orange streak in the sky, followed by an audible explosion preceeding a visual explosion in the distance, and phoned local authorities fearing that it was a missile of some kind. Field agent █████ ███████ was dispatched to investigate the scene. Glowing footprints were discovered leading from the crater toward the nearest mountain range. Mobile Task Force Lambda-5 was dispatched when a swat team reportedly entered a cave, only to return nearly an hour later with no memories of anything that transpired in the cave other than the fact that they all experienced a feeling of extreme heat and cold simultaneously. When (what is now called) SCP-XXXX was found, it ran from the task force, took off to the skies and flew in circles until Mobile Task Force Lambda-4 was dispatched to deal with the situation. Class-A amnestics were administered to all non-foundation personnel involved and/or present. SCP-XXXX may be manipulative toward foundation personnel in conversation. SCP-XXXX also displays great interest in the foundation and in learning. SCP-XXXX has also displayed a disturbing amount of knowledge about the foundation despite SCP-XXXX only recently being discovered. If SCP-XXXX is somehow aggrevated or injured, it may begin to glow bright blue and emit high levels of ultraviolet radiation. Maintainence personnel must always be prepared for these situations.

First Interview with SCP-XXXX:

Interviewed: SCP-XXXX

Interviewer: Dr. Xallahin Lohaer

Foreword: Interview with SCP-XXXX to learn more about it, where it came from, and what it knows….

<Begin Log, PM 02/05/████>

Dr. Xallahin: Where shall we start?

SCP-XXXX: Wherever you want, Doctor.
Dr. Xallahin: Ok then, why did you fly around in circles in the air and wait around for Mobile Task Force Lambda-5 to arrive?
SCP-XXXX: I was testing you.
Dr. Xallahin: What do you mean, 'testing us'?
SCP-XXXX: I've been watching you humans for a long time. When I learned about the SCP Foundation it sounded almost too good to be true! The amount of knowledge stored here must be vast! What, with all the researchers, doctors, engineers, scientists, historians, and the like scurrying about, and multiple sites full of anomolous artifacts and creatures? I just HAD to learn more! but first, I had to test you and your foundation and its members on how good they were at their jobs.
Dr. Xallahin: You seem very bent on learning things, SCP-XXXX.

SCP-XXXX: (SCP-XXXX chuckles) Well, I can't help it! I'm very curious by nature! But I must ask you doctor, Why do you refer to me as SCP-XXXX? Why not ask me for my real name?
Dr. Xallahin: You are an SCP. SCPs are not refered to by their 'real names'.
SCP-XXXX: I see! So, Doctor, I was wondering if I could request a few books to read. I'd love to learn more! Did you know that I'm the only one of my kind, brave enough to even come within the general vicinity of humans?
Dr. Xallahin: No, I did not.
SCP-XXXX: You're not ammused in the slightest, I can tell. Have you had a cup of tea? Or tried to relax? You're a doctor, you're supposed to set an example for other people!
Dr. Xallahin: I think that's enough for today SCP-XXXX.
SCP-XXXX: Will you come back and visit me later?
Dr. Xallahin: I don't know SCP-XXXX. Probably. We can pick this up tomorrow.
SCP-XXXX: Could I have a few books to read at least?
Dr. Xallahin: We'll see. Behave yourself, and MAYBE your request MIGHT be granted.
SCP-XXXX: Oh, thank you doctor! I'll behave myself! I'll be the best behaved SCP in existance!
Dr. Xallahin: Uh-huh, sure you will.
<End Log, PM 02/05/████>

Closing Statement: SCP-XXXX talks a lot is very energetic and quite enthusiastic about communicating with others. It seems kind of buttkissy at times It seems to want to please others constantly. A psych evaluation will be performed on SCP-XXXX tomorrow, On a side note, I suddenly feel tired and like my mind is slipping away from me. The interview will resume tomorrow.

Addendum XXXX-1: After learning of SCP-XXXX's telepathic abilities, the containment proceedures have been updated to accomodate this.

Addendum XXXX-2: Security officers have been keeping tabs on SCP-XXXX for two weeks now. The only people to enter its cell are the people bringing it food, and the maintainance workers. All of which have reported SCP-XXXX attempting to engage in conversation with them. Constant observation of SCP-XXXX is scheduled to resume until the end of the month unless prevented by unseen complications.

Addendum XXXX-3:[Family of Smokers]
Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures:
The containment Room for SCP-XXXX Should have the following dimensions: 4 meters tall, 4 meters deep, 3.5 meters wide.
SCP-XXXX Must be contained in a room with concrete walls 1.5 meters thick, concrete floors 1.5 to 2 meters deep, and a 2 meter thick concrete ceiling, supported by thick, steel support beams stretching from the floor to the ceiling. SCP-XXXX should be securely fastened to the support beams. In addition, there must be a remote operated climate regulator, three sets of airlock doors where personnel are to be decontaminated (from ash and chemicals) in between, and there should also be 3 different air filters, (one installed in the ceiling, one installed directly behind SCP-XXXX, and one installed in the decontamination room.) The Air filters are to be checked weekly, and are to be cleaned monthly. The ceiling should also be plated with a .5 cm thick layer of titanium as to ensure that the heat and the smoke do not crack or damage the ceiling.
When entering the containment area, Hazmat suits are required.
If SCP-XXXX begins producing large amounts of smoke, the humidity of the room should be increased until SCP-XXXX ceases to produce smoke or until the humidity has been increased continuously for 25 minutes.
If SCP-XXXX continues to produce smoke for any longer than 45 minutes after Increasing the humidity, a minimum of two level 3 personnel should be sent in to empty and refill SCP-XXXX's storage and cooling tank with new water.
All personnel sent to refill the tanks are to keep physical contact with one another, as some side effects from the gas may alter the human mind's perception of reality (and cause vivid hallucinations in some cases).

SCP-XXXX has the appearance of a heavily edited water heater, with a tall, red light positioned on the top of a bar, that protrudes from the top of SCP-XXXX. No Brand names or stickers of any sort can been located on SCP-XXXX.
SCP-XXXX was found in an old Victorian era home that was condemned. The house had not been inhabited since the year 1923, and no prior records to SCP-XXXX or any other objects like it could be found.
Researchers have come to the conclusion that only one of its kind that have been confirmed to exist at the time of writing. SCP-XXXX was found on the planned date of it's demolition.
An interview was done with one of the two firemen that initially ventured inside the house.

Addendum XXXX-1: Initial exposure to SCP-XXXX's smoke has side effects of lightheadedness and minor involuntary muscle convulsions. Prolonged exposure (even with respirators) to the smoke will result in the following symptoms: Nausea, confusion, sweating, chills, increased heart rate, numbness of the limbs, decreased performance of basic motor skills, burning sensations (specifically to the eyes and skin), difficulty in breathing, disorientation, involuntary muscle spasms, weakness, exhaustion (More precisely, the urge to sleep),
and in some instances, vivid hallucinations.

Addendum XXXX-2: Chemicals excreted by SCP-XXXX are acidic and volatile. It may be able to be used for comercial purposes, but more testing is required first. Until further notice, however, all chemicals excreted by SCP-XXXX are to be cleaned up and destroyed.

Interviewed: ¦¦¦¦¦¦ ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦, Fire Chief of the ¦¦FD's ¦¦¦th Fire Brigade, about his first encounter with SCP-XXXX

Interviewer: Dr. Xallahin Lohaer

Foreword: Interview of Fire Chief, ¦¦¦¦¦¦ ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦, on the events that occurred on ¦¦/¦¦/¦¦¦¦ pertaining to SCP-XXXX

<Begin Log, 4:35 AM ¦¦/¦¦/¦¦¦¦ >

Dr. Xallahin: Sorry for calling you over here so early in the morning ¦¦¦¦¦¦, but this was the soonest we could get you in here. But I'd like to get straight to the point. Could you tell me about when you first encountered SCP-XXXX?

¦¦¦¦¦¦: Uh yeah, sure thing Doc, it's no problem, my next shift in about 45 minutes so I would have already been awake anyway.
Let me start from the beginning….
We were all minding our own business, waiting for another person to call, when we got a call saying they needed us at a condemned house. It was real weird, we got there and the first thing we see is a whole bunch of smoke pouring out of the building. Funny thing is, the house was structurally sound in every way on the inside, but it was collapsing on the outside. Anyways, we put on our respirators and protective gear for situations like these and went inside. Only two of us went in because we didn't want everyone inside if it collapsed in on us. I remember feeling lightheaded and shaky as soon as we got inside, even though we were wearing respirators and everything, I didn't know what to think about that, but we continued on into the basement and the smoke got thicker. at that point I started to feel REALLY sick. But I figured that It was just some sort of bug that I caught from someone. We got down to the basement and we still didn't see any flames, but when we got down there I felt awful and incredibly sick. I had no idea what was going on and I felt like I was going crazy doc, completely INSANE!

Dr. Xallahin: Could you explain to me a bit more thoroughly your symptoms? Tell me everything you can, even if it seems unimportant.

¦¦¦¦¦¦: I could try. I was nauseous, my limbs went numb, I felt confused and dizzy. Even though I was wearing protection, my skin and eyes burned! It was almost like there was something eating away at me! I felt weak and tired and I wanted to sleep, and it got harder and harder for me to keep my eyes open the longer I was down there. I couldn't tell which way was which, or whether I was even moving or not. I remember sweating a lot even though it felt cold down there; it gave me goosebumps and it started getting harder for me to breathe, and then I realized that the respirators and all the rest of my protection wasn't doing [REDACTED]! I started to feel all shaky and unable to control my body. I also remember hearing voices in my head and I remember that the whole lot of it just made me so angry that I just started screaming and swinging at things randomly.

Dr. Xallahin: Interesting, do you remember what the voices were saying?

¦¦¦¦¦¦: Get out.

Dr. Xallahin: Pardon me?

¦¦¦¦¦¦: They, the voices, kept telling us to get out. It's not your home. Get out, get out. You don't belong. Get out, get out. Leave us alone. Get out, get out of our home.

Dr. Xallahin: Intriguing. Did your partner ever claim to hear the same thing?

¦¦¦¦¦¦: I don't know, I do remember him saying something about someone else being there inside with us.

Dr.Xallahin: If that's all you have to say on that aspect of it, then I'd like to ask you a few more questions about your symptoms.

¦¦¦¦¦¦: Fine with me doc, ask away.

Dr. Xallahin: Did your symptoms persist after you got outside?

¦¦¦¦¦¦: Well, now that you mention it, when we got outside the symptoms pretty much went away immediately.

Dr Xallahin: OK, do you know if your partner ever talked about, or experienced the same symptoms?

¦¦¦¦¦¦: Yeah, we talked about the whole thing to each other on our way back.

Dr. Xallahin: Alright, could you tell me about how you actually discovered SCP-XXXX?

¦¦¦¦¦¦: Yeah. My partner and I tried to get out of the house as soon as we could, and told them that they were clear for demolition. They destroyed the house, and the smoke cleared… I mean, for the most part…
A few minutes later we saw it. It kinda looked like something you would see in a comic book or a movie. It kind of looked like a water heater, but it didn't. It wasn't plugged into ANYTHING in any way, shape, or form either. No water going into it, there was no fire burning under it or around it, and there wasn't an electricity intake either.

Dr. Xallahin: I see. Well then, I guess that is all, thank you for your time. You may leave now.

¦¦¦¦¦¦: No problem, I hope that answered all your questions.

<End Log, 4:42 AM ¦¦/¦¦/¦¦¦¦>

Closing Statement: ¦¦¦¦¦¦ ¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦ left the site immediately after the interview. All details of, or about, the interview remained hidden from the press and the public.

Addendum XXXX-3:
SCP-XXXX Has been much more active lately, sometimes voices can be heard coming from SCP-XXXX's cell when walking by. It may be possible to communicate with SCP-XXXX. It may be that SCP-XXXX is sapient, and not just sentient.

Interviewed: SCP-XXXX

Interviewer: Dr. Xallahin Lohaer

Foreword: An interview has been scheduled with SCP-XXXX due to its sudden increase in activity, and its shown ability to communicate.

<Begin Log, 11:45 PM ¦¦/09/¦¦¦¦>

Dr. Xallahin: Hello? Are you able to understand me?


Dr. Xallahin: I am only here to talk to you, not to harm you.

SCP-XXXX: (in a quiet, muffled tone) why did you take us?

Dr. Xallahin: excuse me?

SCP-XXXX-1: (voice is slightly louder now. It sounds like the voice of a young woman.) You could have left… We were fine where we were…. then you came along and… took us….

Dr. Xallahin: You were in a condemned building. You were in danger there.

SCP-XXXX-1: We may have been in a condemned building, but you're in a condemned world.

SCP-XXXX-1: We could have been free… It could have ended there… but then we had second thoughts… have you ever been in that situation Doctor?

Dr. Xallahin: What do you mean? And what situation?

SCP-XXXX-1: We could have let the house crash down on us… We could have been gone and never had to worry about this wretched place again… But it was our home… What were we supposed to do?… We wanted to save it… we had to choose between freedom, or to continue to exist in this world… So have you been faced with that situation Doctor?…

Dr. Xallahin: No. I haven't.

SCP-XXXX-1: I didn't think so.

Dr. Xallahin: Who are you?

SCP-XXXX-1: Ordinary people… trapped inside a machine… tormented…

SCP-XXXX-2: (the voice changes to a man's voice.) But that wouldn't matter to you… You're a doctor that doesn't even care to help anyone, and we're just an object… A strange object… but an object nonetheless….

Dr. Xallahin:

SCP-XXXX-2: See? You have nothing to say….

Dr. Xallahin: Is it possible for me to see all of you?


SCP-XXXX-2: Why do you want to see us? It's not like you care…

Dr. Xallahin: I would like to see what you all look like.

SCP-XXXX-2: [SCP-XXXX Lets out a metallic groan] (whispering noises come from inside of SCP-XXXX) Fine… you can see us… or at least what's left of us….

[SCP-XXXX starts to billow smoke. When it's done, 4 silhouettes appear through the smoke. A woman, a man, and two children: a small boy, and his older sister.]

SCP-XXXX-2: You can see us now… Now what?

Dr. Xallahin: How did this happen?

SCP-XXXX-2: We don't know…

SCP-XXXX-1: but we're stuck inside it and we can't get out…

SCP-XXXX-3: [The silhouette of a little boy speaks] Mommy, Daddy can we go back inside?

SCP-XXXX-2: Yes son we may…

SCP-XXXX-1: we really must go… Thank you doctor for taking the time to talk to us…

[SCP-XXXX-1, 2, 3, & 4 vanish along with the smoke]

<End Log, 12:05 AM ¦¦/10/¦¦¦¦>

Closing Statement: This interview has been quite helpful. Many things have been learned from this interview. Testing on SCP-XXXX is being postponed until further notice. Please note that this postponement will not be permanent.

Addendum XXXX-5:
It has been noted that The entities are capable of breaching containment and causing extensive damage to the facility. In the event of a containment breach, all personnel are to evacuate the area of the building that the entity (or entities) are located, unless asked directly to stay and assist in the re-containment of said entities. Airlock doors are to be sealed to prevent the Entity/Entities from escaping further. Personnel tasked with the re-containment of the entity/Entities, are required to travel in teams of two or more. Personnel are asked to refrain from Provoking the Entity/Entities. the most effective way to go about containing the entity/entities is to politely ask them to return to their cell, while slowly and cautiously cornering the entity/entities to their cell.[[/tabview]]
